From what I've been told, it's possible that these things provide 1-2 psi of pressure when the engine is idling, but once RPMs start to increase it quickly turns to vacuum and ends up causing a restriction instead. Walk away.

The other much scarier story is the plastic impeller falling apart and getting sucked into the engine.
